How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

A five-minute or less phone pitch, followed by an email if I request more information or express interest in your idea.

What's your favorite social network?

When's the best time to pitch you?

No ideal time. For feature stories, I like to know about your event or special occasion about one week in advance.
